Sharing a Room

Before our baby was born our two youngest children had their own rooms.  If possible, I really like the baby to have their own room so before she was born we moved our 3 year old daughter and 5 year old son into the same bedroom.  Being a boy and girl I knew that they probably wouldn't share a room long term, but it has worked out really well because they are close to the same age and go to bed at the same time.

I will admit, I have been surprised how much they have enjoyed sharing a room.  They are good friends!

When it came to decorating, I wanted their room to look nice but I didn't want to spend a lot of money because I know eventually I would like to have our 3 year old daughter share with the baby sister.

Twin beds- we purchase from Pottery Barn (I bought the floor models at a discounted price)

Nightstands- both kids have their own nightstand for their own personal things.  One was free the other was $7 at a thrift store, I refinished them.

Duvet Covers- I made them out of flat sheet and ribbon (less than $20 each)

Pillow Shams- Bought the blue one at Homegoods, sewed the pink one.

Accent Pillows- Pottery Barn and Homegoods

Lamp- Our 5 year old wanted an orange lamp.  He picked it out at Hobby Lobby.

Rug- Pottery Barn

Nightstand accessories (boxes and mailbox)- Hobby Lobby and Pottery Barn

Big letters- clearance from Hobby Lobby, I painted them white

Their room is small, I didn't want to add a dresser.  We put the clear plastic drawers in their closet and they work perfectly for their little clothes.

Their room looks great! I love the duvets you made. I also like that each child has their own night stand. Awesome job!
